Bible Bowl Teams Meet in Moses Lake

The Upper Columbia Conference (UCC) Bible Achievement Bowl was held in Moses Lake, Wash., on Sabbath, Feb. 25.

Among teams participating were Idaho's Hayden Lake Ponderosa Pathfinders and seven teams from Washington, including: the Cle Elum/Ellensburg Wind Valley Arrows; the Colville Cougars; the Kennewick Nighthawks; the Moses Lake Crusaders; the Othello Outreachers; the Walla Walla Sunrise Club; and Wenatchee's Apple Valley Pathfinder Club.

Wayne Hicks, UCC Pathfinder director, welcomed the participants and spectators to the event, which was sponsored by the Moses Lake Church and Pathfinder Club. Parents were invited to participate in their own team, like they have for the past three years.

One person remarked that this was a wonderful way to spend a Sabbath afternoon — watching the Pathfinders compete against themselves and becoming "winners" because they studied the Bible. And they all studied hard!

"The Book of Isaiah was a hard book, and yet the Pathfinders were up to the challenge," says one Pathfinder coordinator. Seeds planted by this activity will be with these Pathfinders forever — they and all who study His Word will find that it will last forever.

One observer mentioned that this was an extremely well-attended event, despite many having to drive through a snowstorm to get there. Three clubs brought parents and pastors as well as Pathfinders to the event.

The Colville Cougars and the Hayden Lake Ponderosa Pathfinders were sent on to the North Pacific Union Bible Achievement Bowl, held March 4 in Chehalis, Wash.
